Back from the weekend!

While I was away at Uncle James' bachelor party, Keely and the boys went to Maple Grove to visit Aunt Nicole & Uncle Sam. Grandpa Perry, Grandma Teresa, and Grandma Nancy were also in town and everybody cooked out and played with the boys. Here are some of the pics Keely took, although Grandma Nancy promises to contribute some of her many photos in the near future.

Finn & Leif always have fun at the park by Sam & Nicole's:

Leif also got to spend some time with Brianna Dekich, and playtime was obviously fun.

Following a tiring weekend, both Finn & Leif decided to skip their naps on the trip home, so in an effort to keep them entertained and ourselves socialized, we went to a party at Max's house. Lots of our friends were there and we had fun cooking out in the woods and running around on the trails.

Leif's going in for a hug from Anja:

Leif and Max debate the pros and cons of holding and eating shoes.


  1. Thanks for the pictures! We had lots of fun hanging out with you guys--you have such great kids.

    I am with the boys, as holding and eating shoes is constantly on my mind. I feel (and this is just my opinion) that the pros outweigh the cons in normal situations.

    I couldn't help but notice the freshly-stained gazebo and deck and well-manicured shrub in the background of the Leif and Brianna picture. That guy really knows how to take care of a yard.

    I am out on the shoe thing, but I think Fetch, Gracie and Nellie have some views they would like me to share:

    Nellie simply likes to carry shoes from the entryway under the bed never to be chewed on, but to be enjoyed visually.

    Fetch likes to chew them to pieces, especially when no one is watching.

    Gracie would like them thrown a football field length about 50 times.

    Cute photos. Thanks for the great weekend at Uncle Sam's/Aunt Nicole's.
